Faro - Description
Particularly attractive is the old part of the city surrounded still by the Roman walls which date back to the 9th. Inside a spacious open square that was once the site of the Roman Forum is a 13th Century Cathedral that faces the 18th Century Episcopal palace. An interesting building is the neighbouring 16th Century Convent that is now turned into the home of the city’s archaeological museum. Within it is a section devoted to the Arab occupation. The "golden" church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo is claimed to be the best example of gold-leaf woodwork in southern Portugal. It also contains the macabre spectacle of a chapel lined with the bones from over 1.200 monks! Next to the small boat basin bordering the Praça de Dom Francisco Gomes is a small Naval Museum composed of scale model boats and galleons showing the maritime history of the coast. There is also the Faro Jewish Heritage Centre which consists of a cemetery and a small museum. Much of the city is now composed of apartments and there are attractive shops and a particularly artistic theatre. Faro is also the home of the Ria Formosa lagoon, a nature reserve of over 17.000 hectares and a stopping place for hundreds of different birds during the spring and autumn migratory periods.
The beach is almost 7 Kms distant from the city and is a long sandy spit reached by crossing a bridge not far from the International Airport. The municipal council has an active cultural department organizing different and various events during the year.

Nice apartment, good facilities, good location.
Schönes Appartement, gute Ausstattung, gute Lage.
I liked the place a lot. Everything was clean and it was equipped with all you need. Location couldn't be better: A few steps to the harbour and the centre. Sylvie was a great host and she can recommend you some great places in the area.
We went in the end of September and it was like you had endless beaches for yourself on the island's by Faro's coast.
We had a very nice time in Faro. The flat was in very good condition, comfortable, and very clean. We were able too reach everything in Faro (train/bus station, old town centre, boat landing place) in few minutes by foot. The host was very nice and welcoming.
Very nice appartment - clean, bright, well equiped. Quiet location. Close to everything. We enjoyed our stay in Faro. Very nice city. Thanks to Sylvie.
Nice and very clean. Close to the city centre. We enjoyed our stay there. We certainly would recommend the place.
One negative point: the wifi was very slow.
A small apartment but very warm and cozy with everything you need. It is decorated with lots of charm and is very well located in the historic center of Faro, perfect for exploring the surrounding area. Sylvie was very kind and friendly, a great hostess!
Un apartamento pequeño pero muy acogedor y coqueto con todo lo necesario. Esta decorado con mucho encanto y esta muy bien situado en el casco histórico de Faro, perfecto para conocer los alrededores. Sylvie fue muy amable y simpática, ¡una gran anfitriona!
Magnificent apartment. Excellently equipped. Nice Portuguese street. Surprisingly entry to apartment. Two excellent bedrooms, good beds and both with a modern bathroom. Also downstairs is a separate toilet room. Fine cuisine.
A 9 regarding location, apartment and equipment.
Maybe it was what the time of year (October), but hus was a bit damp.
Prachtig appartement. Uitstekend uitgerust. Leuk Portugees straatje. Verrassend binnenkomst bij appartement. Twee uitstekende slaapkamers, goede bedden en allebei voorzien van een moderne badkamer. Ook beneden nog een aparte toiletruimte. Prima keuken.
Een 9 voor wat betreft ligging, appartement en uitrusting.
Misschien lag het wat aan de tijd van het jaar (oktober), maar hus was wel een beetje vochtig.
